UGE International Closes Second Green Bond Tranche
UGE International has completed a second tranche closing of its brokered private placement of green bonds of the Company (“Green Bonds”), previously announced in its March 30, 2023 press release, with additional gross proceeds of $280,542.50 for total gross proceeds of $1,705,087.50 (the “Offering”). The Offering comprised of a brokered “best efforts” private placement led by Canaccord Genuity Corp., on behalf of a syndicate of agents including iA Private Wealth Inc. and Raymond James Ltd. (collectively, the “Agents”) in accordance with the terms and conditions of an agency agreement (the “Agency Agreement”) entered into on March 30, 2023 by the Company and the Agents.
The Green Bonds were issued in a Canadian dollar denominated series, each having a face value of $1,000 and a subscription price of $977.50, mature on June 30, 2027 (the “Maturity Date”), and bear interest at a rate of 9% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears calculated on the last calendar day of June and December, with the first interest payment to be made on December 31, 2023. Other than for their issuance date, the Green Bonds issued in this second tranche closing have the same terms as those described in the Company’s press release of March 30, 2023 announcing the first tranche closing.
Net proceeds from the Offering will be utilized for the development of solar and energy storage projects of UGE and its subsidiaries. The Green Bonds will be subject to a four month hold period from their date of issuance.
